Keith's first show was 10-19-71. Donna guested on 12-31-71 and joined properly on 3-25-72. She was absent on 11-30-73, 12-01-73, 12-02-73, 12-04-73, 12-06-73, 12-08-73, 12-10-73, 12-12-73, 12-18-73, and 12-19-73.

She was there from then onwards until Keith and Donna's last show on 02-17-79.

Hope that's helpful.

Many thanks - and much appreciated! I will be using this little post as an invaluable reference the next time I organize my ipod.

Also 2nd set for 7-17-76. It is an on-fire show as well.

I'm very familiar with 7/18/76, but not know about 7/17 - thanks! That is one incredible week ...

7/17/76 second set is the hidden gem of the run

The outro jam during Comes a Time on 7/17/76 is one of the most gorgeous pieces of improvisation the Grateful Dead have ever performed, but I don't see how you could possibly consider any of the Orpheum shows "hidden gems"

For my tastes, Cliff, that second set, from Comes A Time > through the encore is one of my most listened to sets over the last few years. Great for rainy days. Though I confess that the copy I listen to most, I replaced, in Toasting it, Yet, Still, One More Ubiquitous Saturday Night after Goin' Down The Road with the Johnny B. Goode from the end of set one - a more enjoyable listen through that way, IMHO.

Not "hidden" but definitely overshadowed by the popular consensus on the following night. I do not share that view. I think 7/17 has more pure "it-ness" and sheer inventiveness and beauty. 7/18 is great but not as raw. 7/18 is a Tiffany Diamond, 7/17 is like scuba diving on a reef. The diamond is beautiful but the reef is awesome.
